Indeed! And as DH said to one guy who asked had he "been" a Marine,... "once a Marine, always a Marine." My DH enlisted a couple of years before yours. Please give your DH my thanks for serving this country. Semper Fi.
I don't mind a little bacon every now and then, but not crazy about the idea in soup. Would you mind sharing your recipe? And how do you find fresh corn this time of year?
Charley, I replied last night with a long response which also included my adaption of an original recipe that I got out of the Cookbook, Vegetarian Epicure. It was my first Vegetarian one purchased when I was 12 in about 1973. Print date shows 1972. Not at home right now so will repost it later. Sorry about that!
As for fresh corn we have it yearly here. Not fresh Georgia grown. Can't wait for summer and good silver queen I think it is shipped from South Florida or other "warmer" areas. It is readily available though.
